Artemis Announces AIRTRAC Enters Production

After several months analyses of airport, airline and Communications Centre operation AIRTRAC is handed over to the Artemis Communications production team for implementation.

AIRTRAC encompasses the existing Sensei suite of software and provides a unique, fully integrated system for airport and air traffic control.

AIRTRAC is a client server system with the server handling all database interactivity and interfacing to the AFTN, AMHS, CIDIN and SMPT/POP3/IMAP.
